Can anyone suggest a nice beach area or island with nice beaches suitable for families not far from Dubrovnik as this is our intended airport arrival...
All help is much appreciated
The beach at Stikovica is delightful...We are about to spend our 4th round of 2 weeks there.. Zaton (the Zaton in Dubrovnik region, not the Zaton elsewhere..so if you look it up make sure you get the right one) also is lovely, with many beaches. You can catch a bus from both to Dubrovnik. No Sandy beaches though, not many of those in the Dubrovnik region...Lopud has a sandy beach, and you can reach it from Dubrovnik.Edited: 20 June 2018, 11:31
Koločep also has a small sandy beach, in front of the Kalamota hotel. It’s a much quieter alternative to Lopud and the island is 30 minutes by foot-passenger ferry from Gruz port in Dubrovnik. Perhaps not so geared up to families though, in terms of things to do, but is beautiful.
Most beaches in the area are pebble beaches with sometimes a small amount of grey sand mixed in. I thought Mlini beach was quite nice.Edited: 20 June 2018, 20:29
